Elderly Commission

Elderly Commission

We facilitate full and equal participation in all aspects of life by older adults in Boston.

We at the Commission on Affairs of the Elderly are dedicated to improving the lives of Boston’s older adults by connecting them with resources and information. We're focused on setting the City’s direction for successful aging in Boston. 

Our services include assistance in applying for government benefits and community-based services, discount programs, housing advice, transportation options, advocacy, volunteer programs, and information and referral.
